Richard is right, this is across the the line (barely) but definitely a cool place to go see. My wife and I tresspassed a bit, got caught by one of the quarry managers and got a full tour. Cool place and cool people. Oh and the ride there and back is fantastic!

NOT THE NEXT TAG BTW!
It was a GREAT ride! I thought I had been that way before, but it was all new to me. It al came together - the temps were perfect, the light was perfect, and the ST ROCKED!

I can't believe no one went to get this already?

OK, I got the tag:



In beautiful downtown Belfast. No GPS coordinates were taken. Had a time getting home, the R26 decided it wouldn't start when hot. Good thing there was a big hill near by.

I actually went there Monday, but since they were forcasting bad weather for the next two days, I put off posting it until today. Tomorrow will be a nice day to a new tag!

VERY nice bike! I'm going to attempt to duplicate the back end of that bike on a project bike. I would love the opportunity to get a closer look at it one day.
